Top 5 Queer Artists who are Changing the Industry
As we hit Pride month, dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQ+ communities around the world, Vibez Music has picked out some of the best singers out there who are changing the music scene.
This year is the 51st anniversary since the start of Stonewall Riots 1969, and with the Black Lives Matter movement, it has become very significant for everyone to come together.
As we support and protest our rights, we wouldn't be here in this position without the presence of some of the most influential people we have witnessed and Vibez Music wants to pay tribute to them.
Marsha P.Johnson - an American gay liberation activist and drag queen who became a prominent figure in the uprising of Stonewall.
"As long as my people don't have their rights across America, there's no reason for celebration."
Sylvia Rivera - a Latin American gay liberation, transgender right activist and participated in demonstrations with the Gay Liberation Front
"We have to be visible. We should not be ashamed of who we are."
Harvey Milk - the first openly gay politician to be elected in California. Milk was assassinated in 1978 but during his time, he pushed legislation to ban discrimination based on sexual employment, housing, and public accommodations.
“Hope will never be silent."
